  • GameLoading: Rise of the Indies Video Documentary is Now Available

    A Kickstarter funded project that aimed to document and detail the lives of many Indie developers was released today. It's called GameLoading: Rise of the Indie and is the result of three years of filming and interviews with people like John Romero (Doom), Davey Wreden (The Stanley Parable), Rami Ismail (studio Vlambeer), Zoe Quinn (Depression Quest), and more.

    In the spirit of movements like the French New Wave, Punk and Grunge, hundreds of independent game auteurs are emerging with their own unique voices and artistic visions. Independent games include a breadth of cultural issues-morality, gender identity, narrative choice, family and humor- that are broadening the types of experience a game can offer. GameLoading captures this unique moment in time as independent games development blew up from an underground scene into a powerful and disruptive force.

    Australian filmmakers Lester and Anna spent three years travelling to 10 countries, couchsurfing and filming leading players within the indie game scene. The resulting documentary, GameLoading, gives an intimate and honest portrait of a diverse group of game makers as they seek to create new experiences and find a place within this evolving art form.

    You can pick it up through Steam, iTunes, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, Humble Store, or
